States: Mississippi: Calhoun
Buried in Crossroads Cemetery in southern Calhoun County is Triphena Elizabeth Weeks (1842-1881) who was the wife of Alonzo Weeks (1837-1906). Alonzo was the oldest son of Solomon Weeks (died 1845) and wife Elizabeth Reel Weeks (died 1855) who had moved their family from northern Winston County to what was then western Chickasaw County. Solomon and Elizabeth are buried in the Moore Cemetery east of Slate Springs. Alonzo eventually moved to Lafayette County and is buried in Kingdom Cemetery at Yocona.
Triphena E. Weeks is buried between Hitt and Gregg graves in a row near the center of Crossroads Cemetery. Between the Hitt graves and Triphena's grave are two graves marked only with native rocks. Between Triphena's grave and the Gregg graves is one grave marked with a native rock.
Does anyone have information on the maiden name of Triphena Elizabeth Weeks? Searching the 1860 census of Calhoun County reveals a Trifina Smith, aged 18, in the family of John W. Smith and wife Martha [house 108/family 107 with post office listed as Hopewell]. Is anyone researching this Smith family?
